Started by Ahmet Ertegun and Herb Abramson in 1947, Atlantic Records (and its subsidiaries Stax, Atco, and Volt) was indispensable in the rise of soul music. What kind of world would it be without Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, and Otis Redding, all of whom did their best work while under the Atlantic umbrella? This 20-disc box collects 20 of the albums released by Atlantic (and the Stax, Volt, and Atco imprints) between 1959 and 1975, and while it includes obvious ones like Ray Charles' What'd I Say (1959) and Booker T. & the M.G.'s' Green Onions (1962), it also includes lesser-known gems like Clarence Wheeler & the Enforcers' Doin' What We Wanna (1971) and Sam Dees' The Show Must Go On (1975), which is the real strength of this wonderful box. This is only a tip of the iceberg in the Atlantic soul catalog, though, so very rich is that legacy.
